We've selected two great DVDs: one focusing on "fast, simple, effective" rescues and the other a comprehensive guide on rescues, towing, technical landings and real-life rescue scenarios. Both DVDs are by renowned coaches. We've also included a compelling read, Fearless by Joe Glickman, who is also the author of The Kayak Companion.
Fearless (BK87) is a compelling read about Freya Hoffmeister’s 2009 circumnavigation of Australia. Author Joe Glickman intertwines the story of a dangerous and difficult year-long adventure with an unflinching look at "The Woman in Black," arguably the most accomplished and enigmatic kayaker on the planet. If and when you put the book down, you can follow Freya on her latest expedition, circumnavigating South America at www.Freyahoffmeister.com.
Sea Kayak Rescues (DV45), a comprehensive modern guide to rescues for all paddlers taught by world class sea kayak instructors Shawna Franklin and Leon Somme. The DVD is produced by award winning filmmaker Bryan Smith who uses stunning slow motion to illustrate details and real- time footage of rescues in tidal races, dynamic water and the open coast.
Shawna and Leon break down self and assisted rescues and show applications in flat, dynamic and rough water. Beautiful cinematography and world class instruction combine in a unique and effective instructional film. 30 Minutes/Extras include a 3 skills video on edging, bow rudder and stern rudders.
